The King is Deadmau5,
This review is from: Get Scraped (MP3 Download)
Though I can't say I'm a fan of all of Deadmau5's work, Get Scraped is bang on the money. This is one of the best electronic albums to come out of the 'noughties. True its not as brilliant as Maps 'We Can Create', nor as raw as Crystal Castles, nor as vividly brooding as Burial, but sounds all the better for it. Deadmau5 is a DJ first and a producer second, and the progressive house beats of Get Scraped reflect this.
The album demonstrates variety that producers seem to lack these days, indeed even Deadmau5 himself seems to be lacking with later efforts. But hey that's his prerogative, he's moving to a different scene. But for the record, what he was doing here suits me just fine. Beats with just the right amount of intelligence.
Picks: The Oshawa Connection; Waking Up From The American Dream; Try Again
